If you declare it to the tax authorities, I don't see there being any problem.

Re: Leaving - bank account

Banks normally charge for keeping an account, but the Post only charges chf 3 per month if you have less than chf 7k there. I know other banks charge around chf 40 a month.

You can close the Post account even if you're not living in Switzerland.
